    My little cub 108. Its a great candidate for a restoration. I have the hood and all the metal is in good shape motor runs great and I have the famous underdrive too. I hope to start restoring it when I fix my other mower tractor.

    I originally posted this back in 2008

    I bought a CC model 73 in 1986 with 38" mower deck for $600. It would have been about 15 yrs old at the time. About 5 years later I gave it to my mother and I bought a model 107 (hydro) with a 42" mower and a 36" snowblower for $1000. The 107 was about the same vintage as the 73 (1969-72), so it was about 20 years old when I bought it. Both tractors were used hard and regularly until I bought my bx1500 in 2005. With even a minimal amount of care, they are virtually indestructible, built like an ag tractor in miniature. There seemed to be no amount of abuse they couldn't endure. In my 20 years of ownership, I found only one achilles heel - the wiring. The cloth insulation rots and creates shorts, but as was mentioned previously, replacement with a modern wiring harness is a relatively simple operation.

    Shortly after buying the bx1500, I sold the 107 for $700, and the 73, which was kept outside and in much worse condition, at least cosmetically, for $200. About 20-years of hard service for a net investment of $700. I was more than satisfied and a little sorry to see them go, but I just didn't have the space to keep them or use for them anymore. I know the 107 was going to be put to work (mainly snow removal as I recall). I don't remember for sure, but the 73 may have been going to be a restoration job.

    I can't say the CC's are better than the other quality GT's of that era, like Gravely, JD, Wheel Horse, etc. I think any of them, in reasonable condition, will serve you well for general duty. There is something about the CC's though, that you just seem to get an emotional attachment to, for some reason.

    Attached are a couple pics of the 107 before it was sold.

    Hi coveredbridge,

    Nice pics of your older machines. Taking me back in time, I worked in central PA @ an International Dealer Keller Bros, in New Bloomfield PA - Perry County as a 18-20 YO fledgling mechanic in 1974-1976.

    Was there I had my first experience with the Cubs fixing them, also spliiting 586/786/986 series (for experience so the other guys could fix them) and repairing and changing calcium loaded rear tires, and steam cleaning the older machines to build character. Of course working on machines was part of growing up on the farm but we had JD..

    Whats "real central PA" ? I think thats like Bellefonte or Centre Hall? I lived in both towns in the late 70s worked at Agway in Centre Gap as a farm automation - do everything tech,

    582 - no was referring to the full size farm tractors 86 series 50-90HP range - usually it was a clutch or a torque converter in the "automatic" version of these tractors. Was good experience there in the early days.

    OK sorry . I dont know jack about the full size. I was lost for a bit. your talking about spliting them apart. the 82's dont split. the NF cubs do. but ya I guess the big boys get split.
